Details for: Talang
Talang volcano, seen here from the Volcanological Survey of Indonesia observation post at Batu Barjangan on the NNE side, is a twin volcano with the older Pasar Arbaa volcano. The summit of Talang lacks a crater, and historical eruptions, consisting of mild explosive activity, have originated from a valley on the NE flank.
